Abstract

Phosphorus is an essential nutrient for plant growth, as well as a critical element involved with biological metabolism. Current phosphorus utilization efficiencies in most counties are below 20%, which results in significant phosphorus loss and brings severe environmental challenges. Therefore,...

Abstract

Monitoring access to drinking water is complex, especially in settings where on premises water supply is not available. Although self-reported data are generally used to estimate coverage of access to drinking water, the relationship between self-reported time travelled and true time travelled is...

Abstract

This work by the Livestock Activity Data Guidance (L-ADG) provides practical methods for countries to estimate the activity data used to compile livestock greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories using the IPCC Tier 2 approach. It aims to support countries to improve the accuracy of the livestock emission...

Abstract

Wildlife-vehicle collisions (WVCs) are caused by the close interaction of human and wildlife habitats worldwide. The large number of globally distributed accidents and the variety of environmental impacts characterize WVCs as intricate and challenging to predict. However, numerous research studies...

Abstract

Globally, wildlife-vehicle conflict (WVC) fragments wildlife populations (due to road/traffic-aversion), kills and injures individual animals, can cause wildlife population declines, may eventually contribute to local or total extinction of certain species, and can harm vehicles and drivers....
